Virginia State Police officials have announced increased patrols for Virginia highways and roads over the Labor Day weekend. Historically, the long weekend and all the activities associated with the holiday, result in an increase in car accidents, serious injuries and highway deaths. The concern is probably justified. AAA is predicting that over 34 million Americans will take trips over 50 miles this weekend, a 4.2% jump from last year. The National Safety Council is predicting over 394 traffic deaths from accidents, an increase of 6% from last year. In addition, the council estimates that 42,000 people will need medical treatment from auto accidents this weekend. Interestingly, the estimated death count from auto accidents could drop by almost half if drivers and passengers would just buckle up. Think about it. The simple act of fastening your seat belt makes it almost 50% less likely that you will die as a result of a car accident. Since there will be a lot of traffic on the roads, allow more time to get your destinations this weekend - and wear your seat belt! Francis P.
